i know not how to quit them

Do u still hate me Senpai? T^T

Hate is a strong word… Um.. Tho no, why would I hate u? Maybe it’s more like I hate how u just straightforwardly said to someone.. Sure if it’s for me..like okay.. And I know I reacted negatively.. Sorry.. Tho.. U can’t just say that to anyone- if I wasn’t so suicidal like before I would have decided to do something stupid.. So u can’t just say that to someone especially who r TRYING hard and trying to fix what people think isn’t right about them, ya know- and now… I even quit trying to make my Russian better…. Just… Never… Say that… Again.. Or this time I will react more negatively because u have no idea how much that can effect other people who r probably going much worse than I am- u don’t know what I go through and so never say that to me, even if I warned u before that I’m bad at it.. U still did.. U could’ve at least criticized me… And so… Just… Don’t ever do anything related to it to anyone at all- u could’ve made a big mistake in ur life… Because even the slightest insult can poke the breaking point in people’s life… Just be careful and put more thoughts into ur actions now- and u r probably thinking on why this is such a big deal…well u can’t know the story behind it I was badly bullied for not being able to communicate with anyone here..and what’s worse is that because of it I couldn’t ask help, when I tried all I got was a laugh and a kick for not knowing how to speak their language properly…there could be many different reasons for others ..and u don’t know it so think before u r going to say it-

Yoo friends

Y’all still seeing my posts?

EDIT it seems to have blocked a lot of Miracles -.- just sent like 20 review requests, maybe if we keep spamming them with those they notice how much crap they did this time xD like, honestly? I mean, I get that they’re not safe for work because the cuteness might make you cry which isn’t suitable for work, but I’m quite sure that’s not what is meant…

Hello, i have a request: how would DA:I companions and advisers react to an Inquisitor that is bullied because of their weight? Romance too please. This thing happens to several people, my little sister went throught this situation for being overweight and i've always been criticized because i'm too thin. I would love to know that someone, even if is fictional, would support people like us. (Sorry if there are mistakes, English is not my first lenguage)

((I have also been bullied for my appearance and I would like to say that everyone is beautiful no matter how they look, and thank you for the request!))

Cassandra: did she just hear correctly? Someone had the nerve to come into skyhold and bash the one person who was trying to save the world. She gave them quite the talking too. ROMANCED: she comforts the inquisitor telling them how beautiful they are and makes sure everyone knows it.

Solas: as soon as the words hit his ears he whipped his head around, all the calmness that surrounded the elf seemed to vanish, he marched up to the person who said the insult and spoke elvish curses no one had heard before, it was quite the scene. ROMANCED: after he finished with the curses he turned to the inquisitor and gave them a kiss, just so everyone knew who he loved.

Varric: he put down his pen and cracked his knuckles as he made his way to the insulter, no one had ever seen somebody run so fast.

Sera: “WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY YOU LITTLE-” She chased them around skyhold and they got heavily pranked before they left. ROMANCED: arrows flew in every direction and people took cover as she went into fits of rage.

Dorian: oh no, did he just hear correctly? After a few insults to the persons fashion and hair he turned to the inquisitor and showered them with compliments. ROMANCED: he is ruthless in his insults, he turns to the inquisitor and kisses their face repeatedly.

Iron bull: when he heard the person commenting on the inquisitors appearance all he had to do was appear in front of the person, they seemed to leave in quite the rush, he turned to the inquisitor to make sure they were ok. ROMANCED: he dived in and scooped the inquisitor up, he gave the insulted a rather scary look and everyone laughed as the chargers were seen chasing them out of skyhold.

Vivienne: she stopped everything she was doing and made her way to the inquisitor. she, like Dorian, was ruthless with her own insults to the person and finally turned to the inquisitor. “Anything else you would like me to do? Freeze them? Turn them into a toad?” She smiled.

Blackwall: he had never been more upset with someone, he made a display in front of the stables and when it was over he made sure the inquisitor was ok. “Don’t listen to people like him, you’re lovely.” He said placing his arm around them. ROMANCED: he chased them out of skyhold and when he returned he didn’t leave the inquisitors side the rest of the day, he also didn’t stop complementing them.

Cole: “I know how to help.” He knew people were scared of him, so he simply appeared behind the inquisitor and the insulter got scared away. “You aren’t what they said you were, you are so amazing to so many people, like me.” He smiled.

Cullen: he unsheathed his sword and gave some threats, no one had seen the commander so intimidating before. ROMANCED: he took the bully on a walk around skyhold, so it was odd that he returned without them, he gave the inquisitor many kisses on their face as well.

Josephine: she had never heard such terrible things before, she marched over to the bully and gave them some advice. “Leave skyhold.” They were seen walking out of skyhold with their head down. ROMANCED: she turned to the inquisition after. “You know none of that is true.” She said kissing them.

Leliana: she sent some spies after they were done, no one has heard from the insulter. “If they want to find them they’ll have to go to the dungeons, but who would look there?” She told the inquisitor, she made sure to remind the inquisitor that they looked amazing. “People like them don’t have anything better to do than make other feel bad about themselves, don’t listen.” She said as they walked around for a little while.

Halla girls <3. Hope you're doing okay. I read in another blog someone asking about a fic where Even can read people's mind but not Isak's and he can see other people's aura (like colors depending on what they're feeling). But in that blog didn't know it and now I'm intereseted because sounds like an AU based on The Immortals Series and I love those books so much. So... any chance you know what is the fic? love you <3

+ Anonymous Said: do you know that fic where even can read other people’s minds, but he somehow can’t read Isak’s? like, he sees people and colors around them depending on how they’re feeling??

Hi, Lovelies!

    Summary: “He likes to watch people laugh. The colors are never quite the same but they always glimmer and shine, and Even likes to play that little game where he closes off his mind and tries to guess what they are laughing about.” - Even can read minds, until the day he can’t. He can’t tell what’s so special about that blond boy.It shouldn’t be that big of a deal but Even soon finds himself obsessed.

Much Love,

anonymous asked:

Hi again. I meant I don't understand why he didn't apologise to Belle. That technically isn't related to Regina. I just think it's a toxic message for a man's wrongdoings to be dismissed like that. It makes me wonder whether or not Adam really cares about healthy representation or even knows what it's meant to look like. If Rumbelle isn't meant to be toxic like CS then the writers don't know what they're doing. How could I expect them to write a healthy relationship between two women?

Hi Anon,

I think we’re both looking at the story in different ways. I can’t give you a short answer but I don’t have time for a long one so this won’t quite cover it.

They never said Rumple and Belle were a good relationship. It’s two people with the potential for love, but something keeps coming in between. They’re telling a story. Story is conflict. Nobody wants to watch more than one happy couple quickly resolving their issues. They know how to write those, that’s Snow & Charming. This post by @ladeeheroin is a good one to check out. Maybe the writers set out to show all kinds of different relationships where one of the three elements is lacking. I would say based on that Emma and Hook is empty love from Emma’s side and maybe infatuation or fatuous love from Hook’s side. Rumple and Belle is a bit harder to pin down, but a lack of commitment - to overcome addiction - seems to be recurring. Emma and Regina actually have commitment - vowing to raise Henry and now Robyn together -, intimacy - they understand each other better than anyone-, and the passion is there too, although mostly obvious in season 1, it is something that can be rekindled. Snow & Charming have been shown to be a good couple, but Emma & Regina have been shown to be better parents, for example. So for the established couple, they’ve given them conflict in parenting Emma and for the potential slow burn couple, they have conflict in their budding relationship, but they’ve made them good parents. Conflict is needed and I think every show faces the challenge of how to walk that line between healthy and toxic relationships while still maintaining conflict. 

I agree that the show not commenting on their obviously toxic relationships and PR elevating them to something good seems like that’s not what they’re doing, but if you look at the story itself, the differences between those couples can’t be coincidental, it’s crafted. (And that in itself is problematic, but that’s a meta-discussion rather than one about the narrative.)

That being said, I cannot watch this show and take it at face value, these relationships aren’t relationships, they are representations of something else. Rumple and Belle often represent Life and Death. They can’t be with and can’t be without each other at the same time.

None of these characters make decisions that make sense psychologically. You mention the lack of apology here now, but they haven’t made sense in a long time. Nothing is ever resolved in a way it would be in real life. Hook tried to kill them all, now he’s married to Emma. We never saw Robin and Regina talk about how she was going to kill Marian. Regina killed Graham, nobody ever mentions it. This entire show only makes sense if we are in Emma’s mental space and when things aren’t addressed, it’s because they were symbolic and not literal. If they’re not addressed, that’s a message in itself. It’s more and more vague, because we’re supposed to shift our focus to the symbolism. This isn’t a drama show, it’s a fairy tale and they’ve used psychoanalytic approach to fairy tales to construct it. If you keep looking at it like a regular drama, you’ll never find the answers… They want us to start asking different questions instead…

this was short n stuff but i didn’t feel right not posting something so here u guys go!!

so i’m not christian or particularly well-versed in how people relate to their christianity, but the whole “what they don’t want you to know is that jesus was a badass radical” thing consistently rubs me the wrong way for reasons i can’t quite articulate and that i’m not the best person to articulate. but i’ve never let that stop me before!

i understand drawing upon the emotional hooks of faith to make a political point or gain support for an idea. but it feels like an intentional gesture of “keep doing this it makes them mad” that i’ve always found counterproductive/really my issue is that the “jesus was a guerrilla fighter” types tend to have interesting ideas re: jews and antisemitism. 

Orange is the New Black: Maritza Ramos [ESFJ]

(Mild spoilers for season 5)

UNOFFICIAL TYPING BY: howtotallyamazing

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Prior to her incarceration at Litchfield, Maritza was quite adept at scamming people because she knew how to charm and read them. Sociable and outgoing, Maritza knows how to handle herself within different social situations whether it be the fellow Latina inmates or having to deal with the sexual harassment of the guards when she becomes the new driver of the prison van. While Maritza claims to be emotionless (“If I hadn’t buried my feelings so deep that they only come up when I watch Stepmom, I’d totally be tearing up right now.”), she has moments where she needs to be validated by someone - whether it be Flaca or their youtube followers when they start documenting their life during the Litchfield prison riot. 

Introverted Sensing (Si): Maritza knows how to exploit social norms and often used her femininity and the fact that people underestimated her because of her looks in her scams. She knows how to put on a persona and act like a ditz in order to gain the upper hand. She’s reluctant to accept Daya was one of the fellow inmates of Spanish Harlem when she first comes to Litchfield due to her jealousy as well as Daya not knowing Spanish.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): While a savvy con artist, Maritza does eventually get in over her head when she’s trying to mastermind a situation in order to steal a car because she doesn’t think of other factors at play. She underestimates how sadistic Humphrey really is and doesn’t anticipate him overhearing her and Flaca’s game of “Would you rather?” to escalate the way it did. During the ruckus of season five’s prison riot, she and Flaca exploit the chaos in order to have a taste of normalcy by seizing phones, checking out youtube, and building their own channel that they use to video their exploits and prison make up tutorials. When the riot is dwindling down, Maritza laments how she almost wish they didn’t have a taste of normalcy because it was easier when they didn’t realize what was outside of the prison walls.

Introverted Thinking (Ti):  Maritza can be petty and doesn’t think objectively all of the time but has her moments - she deliberately pushes an armed Humphrey in the riot in order to disarm him, giving Daya the gun. Her remarks towards others can be cutting, sarcastic, and dry - like when she puts the guards in their place. (“You know what gets me so hot? Is when guys compare me to breakfast, and when they talk about me like I’m not even here. How about you call me “that oatmeal in the front seat” and I’ll be so yours?“)

youtube

You all have, by now, most likely gotten a good sense of my amazing friend, Joan (@welcome-to-the-joangle), who’s been in countless short videos, now YouTube videos, and other things. In this video, we delve into our relationship, and see how well we know each other. Lots of things were brought up that I did not anticipate haha! I hope you enjoy!!

anonymous asked:

Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! http://whatisthiscutenonsense.tumblr.com/post/147379834506/eruhamster-retroautomaton-some-crying-tips 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how they act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help! 

I have always found it hard to open up about the chapters that are closed now, I have always found it very difficult to explain myself, I don’t know how to put it all into words, everything that makes me .
So I will slowly introduce you to myself through my favourite quotes and songs that hold past experiences and memories and hopes, through the places on a map, I have always liked quite places, my itineraries will reveal that about me. The way I spend my Sundays and the things I keep collecting and the memories I can’t get rid of and keep bringing them up in odd ways in our talks and from the things I flinch at and the things that send a wave of peace .
You will have to read me. That’s the only way you will ever get to know me slowly.

Characters: Dean x Reader

Warnings: angst adjacent, smut, dirty talk, LOTS of language

Word Count: 2.7k

A/N: I was looking through some REALLY old requests and I came across an idea from @jennalyncarrigan1230 from who knows how long ago. She pitched an idea that I have twisted and LOVE the outcome. I doubt she even remembers sending the ask, but her initial idea sparked this smutty goodness. This took on a life of its own. I haven’t wrote Dean smut or ANY smut in quite some time. This is officially DIRTY. Or at least by my standards it is. Hope you enjoy. ;) Italics & Bold indicate reader’s thoughts.  This has very little plot. Just the poor reader thinking her secret dirty thoughts about Dean only to have them be not so secret anymore.

Feedback Appreciated

French TV shows rec list:

Fais pas ci fais pas ça:

Comedy about two very different families living right next to each other: The Lepics and the Bouleys. There are nine seasons so we can see the characters evolve on a really long time period. Some serious issues are tackled with humour, like education, how to cope with the death of a loved one, or how parents react to one of their children coming out as gay, for instance. Most of the characters are really lovable and you easily get attached to them even though they can be annoying sometimes. Also, there are some really funny moments. I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favourite shows ever but I had a nice time watching it (though, I haven’t watched all the seasons yet).

Trigger warning: none that I can think of (this show is suitable for children).

Level of difficulty when it comes to French: I think it should be fine (there’s nothing really technical, the show’s about everyday life, so it mainly uses colloquial/casual French).

Les Bleus premiers pas dans la police:

A four-season show about rookies in the French police. I used to really love this show when I was in middle school, and I have very fond memories of it now, even if I haven’t watched it for a long time. This show has diversity and representation: a Muslim man (who is one of the main characters) and his family, gay men (one of them is also a main character), a bisexual woman (also a main character in the first seasons), and so on. It also portrays strong female characters (including a woman in a position of power, from season 2 to the end I think). The characters are very lovable (in my opinion), and funny. By the way, this show has very funny moments as well as serious moments (including the scenes showing how the LGBT characters and the women deal with discrimination at their workplace or elsewhere). The only problem with this show is that the end is a bit unsatisfying considering it stopped because it failed to get renewed (or at least that’s what I understood at the time).   

Trigger warning: depiction of discrimination (for instance, homophobia), and of course the usual warnings when it comes to cop shows (even though it is far less graphic than most other shows of this kind, and there are less murder investigations than in most investigation shows).

Level of difficulty when it comes to French: I think this one is okay too. There might be some terms describing police stuff, but all in all it’s pretty casual.

Le Bureau des Légendes (ongoing show):

A show about the DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure), which is basically the French intelligence agency concerning foreign matters. It has three seasons so far and it’s one of my favourite TV show ever. It’s captivating, I got really attached to many of the characters (and most of them are not completely good or bad, there are a lot of grey characters, which is great), and it’s also really moving (especially the last season I think). One of my favourite thing about this show is its subtlety: it’s deeply moving, but in a subtle and somewhat low-key way. There are close to no typical tear-jerking scenes, with sad music and close-ups on the crying faces of devastated characters. There are really sad scenes, but they are played out with a great sobriety.

Trigger warning: psychological and physical torture (nothing too graphic though).

Level of difficulty when it comes to French: it should be mainly okay, I think. There are probably some technical terms, since it’s about an intelligence agency, but it should be understandable as a whole. Also, many scenes are in other languages (English, Farsi, Arabic, etc) and are subtitled in French, which is really good in order to practise your written French ;)

Les Revenants (ongoing show):

A show about dead people coming back to life in a village of the Pyrénées. It only has two seasons so far, but I’m really looking forward to more. The show is really mysterious, with a gloomy atmosphere that I absolutely love. The dead people (who are from different generations and died at different times) come back to their family/loved ones (when they have some), and no one understands what happened, including the dead people. After their arrival, other very strange events take place in the village. Some characters have very dubious motives and you’re often unsettled, not knowing what to think of them. However, you can’t help but to get attached to some of them anyway. This show has some very serious themes like how to cope with the death of a loved one, death in general, love, family (by blood or by choice).

Trigger warnings: death, suicide.

Level of difficulty concerning French: I think it’s pretty okay… The show aired on American TV so you can probably find a subtitled version quite easily, which is pretty cool :D

Kaamelott:

My favourite French tv show (and even my favourite show ever). This show depicts the Arthurian legend in a humorous way, and it’s one of the funniest thing I’ve ever watched. The humour is unique, the characters are really lovable, and the entire show is extremely creative: this is honestly pure genius. Plus, the atmosphere evolves from something exclusively light and funny to something that is serious and deeply moving at times. The show goes from episodes that last a few minutes to far longer episodes in the 6th (and last) book (=season). I could go on and on about this show, but nothing I could say would make it justice. Honestly, just give it a go, this is brilliant.

PS: Alexandre Astier (who plays Arhtur, wrote the scenario, the music and basically came up with this entire masterpiece) is a national hero. That’s all I had to say.

Trigger warning: it’s really funny and you’re having the time of your life, and suddenly there is a serious/sad scene and you feel like crying (but it’s worth it)… just be prepared ^^

Level of difficulty concerning French: it might be pretty hard at first, because they speak quite quickly and use weird expressions (but then, use these expressions in front of Kaamelott fans [ie a looooot of people] and see their faces lit up => it could be really rewarding I think).

Apart from these, all the creations canal + (Braquo, Engrenages, Cercle polaire…) have a good reputation/positive reviews I think, but I’ve only watched Les Revenants and Le Bureau des Légendes for now, so I only talked about those ^^

I think many people like 10 pour cent and Hero Corp too, but I haven’t watched them (yet) so I couldn’t include them in the list.

listen you guys dont understand how overwhelming it is to see a predominantly black cast in a movie that isn’t involving slavery. how absolutely thrilling it is to know that a kid is going to see black panther and realize that heroes can look just like them. it is an experience that many of us were deprived of as children and i can almost feel a sense of my childhood coming back thinking about how i always wanted someone that could represent my culture and having that now is something i can’t quite put into words.

Of Hidden Talents (Feysand Fluff)

So this just popped into my head last night when I couldn’t sleep. Set post-ACOWAR and contains nothing but fluff.

“You’re just full of surprises, aren’t you?” Feyre found herself commenting, smiling slightly as she tried not to groan in pleasure under Rhys’ hands.

He chuckled from where he was seated behind her, the sound sending a thrill through her spine, even decades into their relationship. “I should hope so; I have to keep my High Lady entertained somehow. Wouldn’t want her eternity to get boring.”

“Boring? How could I ever get bored with a mate who thinks so much of himself?” She shot back, though its effect was lost when she leaned further into him, her hands running over the legs that were on either side of her. She could feel the delicious heat of his bare chest so close behind her, the thin nightdress she was wearing a poor barrier between them. 

Rhys’ fingers continued to comb through her hair, expertly separating it into three equal parts. “I take offense to that.”

Feyre let out an aborted snort. “No, you don’t.” 

“No, I don’t,” Rhys agreed, in a blithe voice.

They fell into a comfortable silence then, built on years of learning how to just be together. Neither of them felt the need to always fill the air between them with pointless chatter. Oh, they liked to joke and bicker… but they also knew when to let words fade away and just enjoy each other’s company.

It had been happening more of late, likely because Rhys had refused to leave Feyre’s side for the past few months. He was a constant presence at her side, though he did his best not to hover too much (he knew all too well how she loathed feeling locked in, how it still made her bones lock up in fear, even after all this time). He needn’t have worried; Feyre never, never felt tied down by her mate, never felt confined by him. She knew that even now, when he was so concerned about her, he would give her space if she asked.

(He’d once told her, in a fit of hopeless romanticism, that he would give her the very stars above Velaris if he could. Feyre had believed him, of course, if only because she said she would do the same for him.)

So Feyre was quiet, letting Rhys gently braid her hair as if he’d done it hundreds of times before. She’d been utterly surprised when he’d offered to do it for her earlier, after he’d heard her curse in front of the mirror while she struggled with trying to tame her wild locks into something more manageable. Feyre was so tired these days and sore too, the heavier she got. And she was constantly hot then cold, her hair always in the way and, Cauldron, she didn’t care for it much now and all the work it took to keep it neat, not when she was already so uncomfortable. She’d been beyond tempted to just chop it all off, had Rhys not stepped in when he did with his innocuous offer.

At first she tried to deny the existence of a problem but she really couldn’t hide anything from Rhys; he knew her too well, felt her struggles through their mating bond and tried to ease her discomfort as much as he could. (Rightly so, Feyre sometimes thought when she particularly annoyed with how limited she was lately, considering he’s the one that put me into this situation in the first place.) 

So here they were, Rhys’s gentle hands working wonders on Feyre’s nerves, his fingers softly tugging at her hair as he built the braid into something spectacular; Feyre herself was usually no slouch when it came her hair (at least when she wasn’t so cranky), but she had the feeling that Rhys was even better. So many hidden talents, this mate of mine.

“Where’d you learn to do this?” she finally asked, curiosity getting the better of her. She’d felt his hesitancy when he first offered, that pang of grief that he’d been unable to conceal from her.

“My sister,” Rhys said after a long pause. His voice had lost that light-hearted edge from earlier, filled instead with wistful regret. “She’d come to me when our mother was too busy for it. She could have asked the servants, of course… but she liked to spend a few moments with me, I think. She continued to ask even long after she could do it by herself. I never had the heart to say no.” 

Feyre’s own heart ached for her mate, for the family he’d lost so long ago. He rarely spoke of the little sister she’d never meet, even less so than his mother. From what she’d gleaned over the years, his sister had been quite a bit younger than him, had looked up to him in a way no one else ever had. Feyre couldn’t even imagine what it had been like for him to have to bury her broken body.

She rubbed her thumbs comfortingly over the sides of his knees. I’m sorry, she sent softly to him through their bond. I’m sorry

Rhys’ mind caressed hers. Me too.

Feyre kept running her hands soothingly over him, tempted to turn around and pull him to her, wrap her arms around those broad shoulders of his. She didn’t though; the act of braiding seemed to calm him… like coming home to something he’d thought he’d long forgotten. (Still, she wished she could protect him from all the pain he endured… but that same pain had made him into the wonderful male he was today.) 

When he was finally done, she saw his finished work briefly through his eyes, the image flashing through her mind.

“It’s beautiful,” Feyre said with a smile, reaching up to run her fingers over the intricate pattern he’d managed to weave her hair into. “Thank you.”

Rhys’ strong arms around wrapped around her body, finally pulling her back to rest against his chest. “I figured it was about time I got some practice,” he whispered in her ear as he moved one hand to cover her rounded belly. “I wouldn’t want our poor daughter to be left with an inept father.”

Feyre tangled her fingers with Rhys’, holding them over her stomach, where their unborn baby was slowly growing. “You could never be an inept father, Rhys,” she told him softly. Rhys only pressed kiss under her jaw in response, though she could feel his quiet gratitude for her faith in him. “Besides, how do you know it’ll be a girl?” Feyre continued, turning her head so she could arch an eyebrow at him.

Mischief lit his violet eyes. “Perhaps I asked Elain.”

Feyre leveled a look at him. “Elain would never tell you, even if she knew.” Her sister had become quite the responsible seer over the years, never revealing more than was necessary. (Well, that and Feyre had wanted it to be a surprise, telling Elain in no uncertain terms not to let Rhys charm the answer out of her.)

“Then let’s call it a father’s intuition,” Rhys replied now, unable to stop his grin.

Feyre laughed, leaning her head against the edge of his jaw. “She’s going to have you wrapped around her little finger, isn’t she?” 

“Of course,” he kissed her forehead, his happiness a near tangible thing. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Feyre could only cuddle in closer. She looked at where their joined hands were resting on her belly. Don’t worry, baby, she thought, we love you already, no what you turn out to be.

(A few years later, when their daughter runs up to Feyre, her hair braided in a crown around her head, little flowers carefully tucked in the midnight blue strands, she doesn’t need to ask who did it. Rhys’ proud smile is answer enough.)
